The Oregon Health Authority released its 2014 Health System Transformation report. The report lays out the progress of Oregon’s coordinated care organizations (CCOs) on key quality and financial measures. The report includes expanded information on the new Oregon Health Plan members who have joined since Jan. 1, 2014, when more Oregonians became eligible for Medicaid as allowed under the Affordable Care Act. This report, which covers calendar year 2014, continues to show improvements in areas such as enrollment in patient-centered primary care homes, and continued decreases in both emergency department visits and hospital admissions due to chronic diseases. The report also says that all of Oregon’s CCOs showed improvement in a number of quality incentive measures and 13 of the 16 CCOs earned the full amount of their quality pool payments in 2014.
